Event Description


7th – 11th of November 2017


Africa House London, working with the UK Department for International Trade and the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) is delighted to announce a Trade and Investment Mission to Nigeria.


We are very pleased to return as guests of the FGN to Abuja and Lagos after our successful visit in February 2016-  in collaboration with the Westminster Africa Business Group (WABG) and supported by the Royal African Society. This mission is accompanied by Helen Grant MP (Minister for Sport and Tourism) and Chi Onwurah MP (Shadow Minister for Innovation). The Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Nigeria, John Howell MP will also attend some meetings in Lagos.


The Federal Government of Nigeria will welcome UK investors and businesses with the AHL Trade Mission to Nigeria. Part of their extensive economic reforms program is to achieve a dynamic economy and improve the lives of ordinary Nigerians. The FGN is working hard to generate a stronger and stable growth rate, by promoting increased production in the non-oil sector of the economy, investing oil revenues in multi-sector economic growth and encouraging diversification. Important aspects of this are:


  • reinforcing the financial sector to improve credit access to the private sector, specifically, small businesses.
  • privatising major public sector entities in oil production and marketing, construction, mining and ports to promote private participation and downstream enterprise development.
  • reduction of government expenditure and involvement in direct economic production through commercialisation, disinvestment and strategic mergers.


Africa House London is offering places to UK businesses on this 2017 Trade Mission to Nigeria. Sectors include: Agriculture, Agro-Produce Manufacturing, Education, Transport, Construction, Security, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Oil and Gas Services and Mining.
